Open Arts 38 Sequenzas

  • Sanctuary Theatre 228 Germain Street Saint John, NB, E2L 2G4 Canada (map)

Written between 1958 and 2002, Luciano Berio’s Sequenza series is one of the most remarkable achievements of the late twentieth century – a collection of virtuoso pieces that explores the capabilities of a solo instrument and its player, making extreme technical demands on the performer while developing the musical vocabulary of each instrument. Three of the Sequenzas, one for each instrument, are accompanied by newly commissioned photographs from members of the Fredericton-based Silverfish Photography Collective Lori Quick, Oliver Flecknell and Peter Gross.

 Nadia Francavilla; Sequenza VIII for violin (1976)

Richard Hornsby; Sequenza IX (1980)

Andrew Reed Miller; Sequenza XIVb for double bass (2002/4)
